Playful Pooch has added more turf! Our third outside play area now has turf for all the small dogs and puppies that come to Playful Pooch. It's great for little paws and the dogs love to play on it! With this added area we now have turf in all play areas outside! If you have a small dog, please consider us for your daycare and boarding needs.



Just click here to join The Pooch family!  Following a successful evaluation day we'll finalize those daycare or boarding plans for your pooch! For more information, please give us a call at 720-941-7529 and send your faxes to 303-565-1915.

At Playful PoochHere at The Pooch, we love your dog like one of our own!  If you have been looking for that ideal place for your perfect pooch, you have finally found it!  By not allowing any "ruff stuff" here at The Pooch, your dog will enjoy hours of safe fun and exercise under the watchful eyes of our caring staff.  Our goal is to provide personal love, care and attention to your dog while you are at work or out of town

Playful puppies, golden oldies and every age in between enjoy our many inside and outside playgrounds, allowing for separate playgroups and activity levels.  Want to see some of our recent guests at play?  Just click here to go to our video gallery or go to our Facebook page by pressing the button to the left!  Our facility is fully fire sprinkled with 24 hour fire and security camera monitoring.

Our Philosophy:  We believe that it is critical to find a balance between socialization, exercise, and play time for dogs of all ages.  Everyone that visits must be able to get along with other dogs so they are able to participate in our social program.  We are not able to provide services to those who cannot play nicely or those that play too "ruff".

Puppies need to learn how to play properly and become socialized with other puppies and young dogs at a very early age from about 10 weeks of age. We will introduce your puppy to other dogs a few at a time until they are comfortable being in with all the dogs of their size or temperament.
